The A-185 is an active CV/Gate buffer and bus access module to feed CV and Gate into the A-100 bus board (e.g when using more than one frame or with external CV/Gate interfaces). 3.5mm jack sockets are provided for CV in, Gate in, 2x CV out and 2x Gate out.
There is also 2x LED’s for CV/Gate indication. When using multiple VCO’s the CV loading can be enough to put the incoming CV out of calibration, this depends on the converter being used. The A-185 buffers the CV signal to prevent this “loading” problem. The A-185 has now been renamed A-185.1 to allow for further modules
